The Starling mobile phone field requires the country code (i.e. +1) in the front of the phone number specified. Can Starling be used without the country code?
Using the country code is not standard practice in some environments.
The country code is required for Starling to work correctly and the product cannot be used without the country code.
This is required as the product is used world-wide and changing the country code would require the product to have an implicit understanding of which country code it was using which is currently not possible.
